Lee Ryan (born 17 June 1983, Chatham, Kent, England) is an English singer-songwriter, actor and member of the British boy band Blue.

Early life

Ryan was born in Chatham, Kent. His parents split up when he was five years old. Ryan mostly lived with his mother, sister Gemma and his grandmother. At the age of 5 it was discovered that he suffered from dyslexia. Ryan attended Chatham Grammar School for Boys, which was then followed by performing arts schools, including the independent fee-paying theatre schools Sylvia Young Theatre School and Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.

Blue

Ryan is a member of boy band Blue[2]. In August of 2005, Blue split up to pursue solo careers under the advice of Sir Elton John[3]. Blue reformed on the 28th of April 2009 [4]. Ryan has had three number one hits while with Blue[5].

2005: Solo career

Ryan is a tenor. He released his first single “Army of Lovers” on 18 July 2005. It was released to mixed reviews and debuted (and peaked) at #3 in the UK Singles Chart. It hit #1 in Italy. On 1 August 2005, Ryan released his debut album, Lee Ryan, to mixed reviews. The album reached #6 in the UK Album Chart and #3 in Italy, where it has spent 5 weeks in the Top 10. On 10 October that year, Ryan released his second solo single “Turn Your Car Around“. The single peaked at #12. In late 2005, Dolce & Gabbana signed Ryan up to be UK face of their new line of clothing. In January 2006, Ryan released his third and final single in the UK “When I Think of You“. The song reached #15 in the UK. He later presented two more tracks. “Real Love” was used for the end credits of the film Ice Age 2: The Meltdown which later led to Ryan voicing the part of an elk in the UK version of the movie. “How Do I” was released on Ryan’s website in the form of a video which he directed. He had previously co-directed the video for Blue’s single “Breathe Easy” which he also wrote.

2007-onwards: Musical hiatus and comeback

After the relative success of his first solo album, Ryan started planning his second solo album. Two tracks, “Stand Up As People” and “Free” were released on his MySpace page. Ryan began promotion for the album with a number of live and acoustic performances across the UK in spring 2007. He also announced on his website that he has recently finished filming a TV show for BBC2, and also filmed a 24 Hours With… special for ITV which aired in June 2007. In September 2007, he appeared as one of the contestants in Hell’s Kitchen. However he had a row with Marco Pierre White about White’s use of the term “pikey”, and was fired from the show.[6]

The single “Reinforce Love” was released on 10 December 2007. The single was being released for Great Ormond Street Hospital and Clic Sargent, which were the two charities that Ryan was touring for in November and December 2007, with young voices. The album was then postponed, and finally cancelled.

In August and September 2008, Ryan also acted alongside Natalie Casey in The Pretender Agenda at The New Players Theatre in London. Ryan filmed two movies in the United States, which are available only on the internet.[7]

He has also taken to writing, and revealed on Loose Women that he and British writer Kelly Marcel had collaborated on a film together. Ryan also appeared on a celebrity edition of Come Dine With Me, aired on 17 September 2008 alongside fellow celebrities Peter Stringfellow, Michelle Heaton and Linda Barker. He finished in joint first place with Linda Barker, both of whom scored 26 points. He has also appeared in series 22, episode 9 of Never Mind the Buzzcocks on 27 November 2008 alongside Mark Watson and Katy Brand, where he got continuously slated by most of the guests and in particular, host Simon Amstell. He had failed to appear on the show almost exactly a year before, being replaced by Dappy from N-Dubz.

On 28 April 2009, Blue announced their reformation. In March 2010 it was confirmed that Ryan had signed to Geffen Records and was making an album of dance music. The first single from the project, “Secret Love” was to be released on 3 May 2010.[8] However, the single release has been pushed back to July 2010.

Despite large amount of airplay in the United Kingdom, the single only managed to peak at #33 on the UK Singles Chart.

Controversies

In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on New York city, the group was being interviewed on BBC and, in the midst of it, Ryan commented that “This New York thing is being blown out of proportion” and asked “What about whales? They are ignoring animals that are more important. Animals need saving and that’s more important”. The other members of the band tried to silence him but Ryan went on.[9]

On 31 December 2007, he was arrested for an assault on a taxi driver in Oxted, Surrey. He was released on bail until February 2008 [10]. At Guildford Magistrates’ Court on 24 June 2008 he was fined £300. He claimed in court “he felt targeted because he is famous”.[11] As a result of this, he was fired from his prime time ITV show which he was due to appear in 6 episodes[12]

Personal life

In June 2008, Ryan announced he was engaged to Samantha Miller, 25, having met on Myspace. Miller had become pregnant, and they were engaged to be married in 2009. On 30 November 2008, the couple had a healthy boy called Rayn Amethyst Lee.

Ryan is a supporter of Charlton Athletic F.C..

Each letter of the name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the month of birth and the first three letters of the name.

Lee Ryan      June 17th, 1983

6 (June) + 12 (L is the 12th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) = 28

So from ages zero to twenty-seven he has the number 28 going on.

28 = Bold.  Daring.  Possibilities.  Overcoming obstacles.  Where there’s a will there’s a way.  Making the impossible possible.  Nothing is impossible.  Fortune favors the bold.  Only the strong survive.
